    Whooo Hoo :cool: Don't try this at home boys & girls ( unless you know what your doing) I just Overclocked my i7 3.40Ghz to 6.00Ghz :eek: I'm using Liquid Nitrogen as a cooler, and the rig is running steady at just 40c whilst Idle :D

    I got the LN from my local surgury (Shhh :gack: ) Anyway, this is Insanely fast

    Nice overclock DVD+R LOL
    The most i could get out of my E2180 (Yeah lame) was 2.8GHZ from 2.0GHZ with stock voltage, tried to get to 3.0GHZ but failed, even if i increased voltage a lot and with the stock fan it's a no go :D

    You do realize that cpu is never a bottleneck? Disk, disk, disk ... My new rig - an article coming in a few weeks - boots in 15 sec on standard 7200rpm disk, so the cpu probably plays little part.

    Nice to see you put medicinal tools to good use, though :)

    Cheers,
    Mrk

    my CPU is always the bottleneck
    if I have one which is not often
    dual CPU black edition
    never ran out of memory
    not sure about disk but doesn't seem to be a problem
    if anything locks up or slows down its the CPU overloaded
    but very rare
